Album review: Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa's 'Mac & Devin Go to High School'
As its title suggests, Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa’s new collaborative album imparts an academic theme. “Mac & Devin Go to High School” is the soundtrack to a forthcoming movie in which the two rappers play a pair of students (Snoop Dogg a “15-year senior,” according to a news release) who teach each other the difference between book smarts and street smarts. And indeed, there is an almost scholarly attention to detail here, at least in regard to these MCs’ joint field of expertise: “I Get Lifted”? Sure. “French Inhale”? OK, yeah. “You Can Put It in a Zag, I’mma Put It in a Blunt”? Truly A-level work.
